A world-renowned artist from Pakistan got more than he bargained for when he accepted an invitation to display his work at MSU’s Broad Art Museum. Current State’s Scott Pohl spoke with Imran Qureshi yesterday. Broad Art Museum curator Alison Gass has wanted to bring Imran Qureshi to East Lansing practically from her arrival at the museum two years ago.
His reputation has only grown during that time, with major installations at places like the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Along with bringing existing pieces to the Broad, he’s creating site-specific works here. The exhibition is called “The God of Small Things”. On top of that, he’s also accepted an invitation to create what’s being called “Crack Art” for a project called “Fragmented” on the streets of East Lansing
